This little cake does not have slice-of-cake stats. It's low in calories and loaded with protein! And because of that, we have zero problem consuming it for breakfast. Add some fruit, and you're all set. Of course, it also makes an excellent late-night treat...

The King of Rock & Roll didn't have the healthiest habits, but we can't dispute the appeal of a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich. What we can do is make it over, so it isn't a hunka-hunka fatty calories. More of a PB&J fan? This grilled take on a classic is ready and waiting.
